In the book, Obama acknowledges that he used cocaine as a high school student but rejected heroin. “Pot had helped, and booze; maybe a little blow when you could afford it. Not smack, though,” he says.
On January 18, 2008, Larry Sinclair posted a YouTube video in which he claimed to have used cocaine with Barack Obama in 1999.

The office of the President is not above the law. If Obama has been using illegal drugs, he has broken the law and should have to face the consequences. And since Obama has promised the most open and transparent administration ever, he has absolutely no excuse for not taking a drug test. If he is clean, let him prove it.
Employees all over this country have to take drug tests. Olympic athletes and many professional athletes have to take drug tests. Is the Presidency less important? No! It’s more important.
“We the people” should push for our new employee (Obama) to take a drug test.
